Joe Thomas Tells Us All Why Colin Kaepernick Is STILL a Free Agent (TWEET)
There are a lot of different theories as to why former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is still a free agent, despite several teams’ need for a quarterback (or backup quarterback).
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman seems to think Kaep is being blackballed by NFL owners who were not pleased with his political stance and reluctance to stand for the national anthem.
As for Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas, he seems to agree—although, unlike Sherman, he doesn’t appear to be as sympathetic towards Kaepernick:
My thoughts re: @Kaepernick7? Teams don’t currently view him as a starting QB, and NFL teams accept ZERO distractions from their backup QBs.
